Choosing an engagement ring is not an easy task and if you can’t decide between family heritage, a beautiful vintage design or an expensive diamond, you can always get some inspiration from celebrities.
Kate Middleton’s oval blue Ceylon sapphire and diamond ring which belonged to Lady Diana is probably one of the most famous engagement rings. Diana had chosen that very ring for her engagement to Prince Charles in 1981 from the selection presented to her by Crown jewellers Garrard of Mayfair. Back then this ring could be bought for £28,500, but by 2010 it was priced at more than £250,000. Of course, for William it had a huge sentimental value, which is why he decided to give it to his future wife, Kate Middleton. Princess Diana adored sapphires and we think they are a fantastic choice for an engagement ring.
On the other hand, chunky diamonds are always fashionable and we love the one Kanye West gave to Kim Kardashian. It is worth 8 million and was made by renowned jewellery designer Lorraine Schwartz. The couple posed together for the April issue of US Vogue and this luxurious engagement ring cannot be missed on the cover.
When Jay-Z popped the question to Beyonce, he did it with an astonishing square cut 18 carat diamond ring worth $5 million which is absolutely huge. However, a custom made diamond ring with a unique shape is even more special than a big, expensive ring and we love the one designed by Robert Procop which Brad Pitt gave to Angelina Jolie.
Fabulous pink oval-shaped diamond ring worth $2 million on Blake Lively’s hand wasn’t spotted until the day after she got married to Ryan Reynolds in a secret ceremony and it perfectly matched her wedding band.
Victoria Beckham’s sparkler is one of the most expensive celebrity engagement rings and it is a beautiful pear cut diamond encircled with brilliant cut diamonds.
Justin Timberlake proposed to Jessica Biel with a gorgeous vintage-inspired 6 carat diamond which he picked all on his own, and American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson got a massive yellow canary diamond with small white diamonds around it from Brandon Blackstock.
